North Korea warns against following 'psychopath' Trump

Saul Franklin | 25 June, 2017, 02:24

The North Korean government has denied mistreating USA student Otto Warmbier, who fell into a coma while being held in prison in the communist state.

In the first official reaction to his death, a spokesman for the National Reconciliation Council earlier on Friday said that Warmbier was treated according to "international standards".

The spokesman, who was not named, said that United States doctors who travelled to North Korea to carry out Warmbier's medical evacuation had recognised that he had been given medical treatment and, despite his serious medical condition, had been sent back to the United States alive.

The University of Virginia student was detained by North Korea for almost 17 months following his January 2016 arrest in Pyongyang, for allegedly trying to steal a propaganda poster while he was visiting the country on a sightseeing tour.

Doctors there said Warmbier had suffered a severe neurological injury from an unknown cause. "Our relevant agencies treat all criminals thoroughly in accordance with domestic laws and global standards and Warmbier was not an exception", a spokesman for the National Reconciliation Council said. But he was arrested in Pyongyang in January 2016 and, as we have reported, was accused of trying to steal a propaganda poster.

His death heightened the conflict between the North and the United States already aggravated by North Korea's defiant missile launches and two nuclear tests since early previous year as part of its effort to build a nuclear-tipped intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of hitting the US mainland.

The two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year said he didn't meet with North Korea's leader, Kim Jong-Un, during his most recent visit. I know being there had something to do with it.

A US official said that the talks Wednesday "elevated" the level of dialogue between the two countries.

When Warmbier arrived in OH, doctors discovered that he had experienced extensive brain damage throughout most areas of his brain.

"Being with Otto made life all the more attractive", Alex Vagonis, Warmbier's girlfriend, said.

The casket of Otto Warmbier is carried from Wyoming High School after his funeral, Thursday, June 22, 2017, in Wyoming, Ohio.

The statement issued by North Korea's foreign ministry was aimed at defending the hermit nation against the accusation of torturing Otto Warmbier.

"He just lived life with such a zest and a passion that I haven't really ever experienced in somebody before", Warmbier's childhood friend Chris Colloton told the Cincinnati Inquirer newspaper.

Two top Trump administration officials insisted Wednesday that the United States and China share a common understanding about the threat posed by North Korea, one day after President Donald Trump tweeted that a Chinese attempt to bring the regime in line "has not worked out".
